THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar will be an opportunity to discuss priorities for improving cancer services and outcomes in England.
Delegates will consider the impact of NHS England’s regional Cancer Alliances and the National Cancer Vanguard on the redesign of local cancer services and the implementation of further measures outlined in NHS England’s Achieving World Class Cancer Outcomes five-year strategy and Next steps on the NHS Five Year Forward View.
They will also assess key issues for the Cancer Drugs Fund one year on from the introduction of the new system and the developing role of NICE in its operation.
Further sessions will address priorities for prevention, early diagnosis and increasing the uptake of screening programmes; the quality of life after treatment and improving the patient experience through the pathway; and the potential of new funding for radiotherapy to deliver better outcomes.
